MODOK World Domination Tour addendum

As mentioned in today's review, the MODOK Elvises were not the only threat Nextwave faced as they fought toward their ultimate goal. Here, from Nextwave: Agents of HATE #11, are the double-page spreads of wild creations, with the villains we could use toys of:

Nextwave versus the spawn of a terrorist cell disguised as a patriotic American corporation.

  • Its the Living Colossi (Tales of Suspense #14, 1960)
  • Beasts of Berlin (Tales to Astonish #60, 1964)
  • Wobbows (Tales to Astonish #51, 1963)
  • Living Brains (Amazing Spider-Man #8, 1963)

Nextwave know that science is a trick on white people and that the shamans of the mountains, the jungle, the desert and the steppe have hated Stephen Hawking for five thousand years.

  • Eye-beam-firing Stephen Hawkings in flying gladiatorial wheelchairs

You must buy six copies of this comic now.

  • Nudist ninjas
  • Flying Chinese windmill men
  • S&M Iron Man babies
  • Atlantean pirates with laser peglegs
  • Elvis MODOKs

Nextwave are in your room and touching your stuff.

  • Cyclops brontosauruses

  • Giant rattlers flying specially designed biplanes
  • Wolverine Kong with a timebomb banana
  • Smaller Wolverine chimpanzees

Nextwave: blatantly wasting your money since 2006.

  • Jetpack sabertooth white tigers
  • Possessors (Strange Tales #118, 1963)
  • Angry tree monsters
  • Hidden Men (Tales to Astonish #67, 1965)
  • Mogul of the Mystic Mountain (Thor #137, 1967)
  • Infant Terribles (Fantastic Four #24, 1963)

Lots and lots of options there, and every one of them would be more interesting than another random Iron Man armor.
